When you know you're going to be inside the shop all day on a beautiful blue sky sunny day you have to get out early to soak it up.
So I wandered up through Nutclough Woods because I knew the meadows above it would be in flower.
Today is Matthews (who works for me at Radiance) birthday and years ago we had a birthday picnic in this meadow surrounded by buttercups so I thought I'd head for the same spot. It was glorious.
I'm totally happy in a meadow with my camera. I see shapes. I imagine how I can put them on wallpaper and lamps!
This little fella did some posing for me,
Then I headed down through the beech woods
and it was still only 9 o'clock.
The perfect way to start the day.
